Newton is Safest City!

Newton Safest City in United States

My Mom Friend Lynn was robbed a few weeks ago. Someone entered her  house (ok, the door wasn’t locked) and made off with her jewelry. Down the street, our friend Debbie noticed a strange man walking through her backyard and called the neighbor to see if work was being done. That man Debbie saw was carrying Lynn’s jewelry in a shopping bag he took from her house.

Lynn and Debbie talked and matched up descriptions. He appears to be the same man.

The upshot?

  • We do look out for one another in Newton.
  • This robber wasn’t caught but he will be eventually if he keeps on doing what he’s doing.
  • The mom network is strong here!
  • We have a small town feel but since we are 9 miles from Boston, we need to lock our doors.
